during a year, there are a variety of different occasions that crop up that give cause for celebration, like Christmas, New Years, Graduation Days, birthdays, anniversaries and christenings. It is at these times that it is customary for people to buy or make chocolates and candies for these events. If you are trying to produce different chocolates for so many occasions, you might be thinking of creating chocolate molds to make new and exciting candies for each event. Making them more than a few times a year might not be a realistic option, so one great idea is to buy your chocolate molds wholesale.
You can now buy custom made shapes for different occasions, and buying them in bulk can bring the benefits of a fantastic selection to choose from and huge discounts!
If you are wondering where you can buy your candy molds wholesale, they are typically obtainable at candy supplies stores or you can buy them online.
If you’re planning to buy locally, there are two things to take into account. The first is the price, so if that’s important it is advisable to compare the prices of a few stores first, but buying candy molds in bulk quantities is far better value, and there can be big discounts to be made.
The other is the quality. Make sure to ask the salesperson about the manufacturing date. It truly matters. Molds with older manufacturing dates will not perform in addition for as long as later models, due to the decline of the materials used to make them. Also, remember to take a good look at the molds. Examine the bottom and the sides carefully, making sure there are no holes, scratches or dents that will cause imperfections in the final consequence.
When buying online there are three basic things that need to be considered when buying chocolate molds, which are drastically different from buying in a local store.
First is the site from where you are planning to buy. Make sure the site is reputable with “contact us” or “chat with us” signs, with comment boxes where buyers can leave their feedbacks about the experience and the quality. However, when buying on eBay, where there are many different sellers, it is a good idea to check for a 100% positive feedback rating, and read some recent comments people have left about the delivery and quality. Sellers on eBay also have contact information where you can get in touch with them about the molds that they are selling.
Second is the price. Many, but not all online shops offer lower prices compared to candy stores, but you may be asked to pay shipping charges, so at the end the prices can be comparable, except when buying them in bulk online, where there can be bigger discounts obtainable, compared to your candy store. Online wholesale stores can give discounts of up to 30%.
The third and most important consideration is the QUALITY. Unbranded or branded chocolates molds are both sold alongside each other, so if you have the “dearer is better” mentality, remember when it comes to chocolate molds there are now fake items being sold everywhere, especially online. So how do you determine fake items from the original ones? Imitation molds look almost exactly the same as the original ones but tend to be cheaper, but not always. Sometimes testing the quality out by buying a few at first before buying in bulk is also a good idea, and this goes for unbranded ones in addition. This is where you need to be confident about your seller, and first get their advice.
Purchasing chocolate molds wholesale can enhance your selection and save you money and time. Start thinking ahead of all the events you will be hosting this year and be well prepared, with a variety of chocolates that will make you the envy of your family, and ensure these occasions will be remembered with appreciation for years to come.
